Anyway, to try and get back on-topic, I thought  this article by Pat Spillane   is worth some discussion.

Pat Spillane: 'Mayo warriors are far from the finished article but improved forward play makes them serious contenders'

Usual Muck from Spillane!
if he mean we are now league champions but can still improve then he probable has a point . and on horan record I can see them improving quiet a bit .
another thing hes going on a bout mayos 5 missed goals
if the had taken them that would have brought the total to 8!
 whens the last time that happen to a Kerry senior team.
I was  quiet happy with the 3 we got .

Only Mikey Sheehy has scored more goals than him, but I suppose all Cillians were from penalties...................this is a wind up I presume?

A lot of hype surrounding Mayo since Sunday, everyone tipping them as the team to challenge the Dubs.

The league can be a difficult gauge sometimes as we don't know where teams are up to in terms of fitness, after Sunday its safe to assume Mayo are in the team in the best shape. Agree with seanie about AOS, looks like he's in the best shape of his life.
Speaking of that, what’s Comer at these days? Must have done serious damage to miss the entire league with an ankle injury sustained at Christmas.

Still in a walking boot. Walsh said he hopes to have him back end of May. Not sure he'll have much of an impact on the Connacht championship though. Maybe the Super 8's if they get that far.

Think it's taken so long as they thought he didn't need surgery at first. Then once it wasn't healing they eventually had to have the surgery done.

Doesn't reflect well on the medical team, he'd be back by now if he'd had the op in the first place. Cummins is a decent enough replacement, for a small fella he gets more than his fair share of fisted goals.
Wasn't Cummins Galways  top scorer from play in the league . Mainly due to goal .though some of the genius's here would hold that against him Following the  the analysis of Co'C.
being the best scorer ever just doesn't cut it for some folk

Mayo were very impressive yesterday and I think they look rejuvenated this year. Aidan O'Shea looks as lean as I've seen him for Mayo and seems to be lasting the pace of the game much better, he hasn't really delivered for Mayo but this is the year.

They will likely pose the biggest threat to Dublin this year with Tyrone next in line.

Kerry look pretty average and were bulled all over the pitch yesterday, they seem to be really lacking in leaders. Mayo destroyed them when the game was in the melting pot.
Imagine how different the narrative would be had Clifford not missed the sitter at the end! People would be totally writing off Mayo as bottlers! Instead itís Kerry were bullied and have no leaders!

Kerry are a young team, who will learn loads from Sundayís game. Plus David Moran will make a huge difference.

A lot of planets aligned for Mayo to win a National League title yesterday.

The first and most important reason was Dublin taking a rest during the League this year.

The Second was Mayo going out early in the Championship last year. 

If ever there was an opportunity for to claim springtime Silverware this was the chance.

This Kerry team have been greatly over hyped based on past underage glory.

All true. To an extent. Hound is correct in that a Clifford goal at the end would have resulted in a different narrative today and different photos. We probably should have won by more, but any win at ht looked unlikely because Kerry's defensive set up was fazing us.
Another other reason we managed to win it, was the contribution of new players that can play at this level. Really play. It is apparent here that Horan is not going with players that Rochford used to call on.

sorry but that is a load of shite
if mayo were to add upp if all the Why ifs buT at and ands  over the last ten years aidan o se would have 4/5 all Ireland medals
Clifford had a attempt at goal Hennelly saved it , that what he was there to do

Great news to wake up to this morning, will watch it back tonight when I get home from work.
Tis only the league for sure, but at the same time it is always good to win. Winning is a habit and that will stand to these players.

A successful league, which was made possible by picking up a couple of early wins. We had the luxury of playing a couple of fringe or completely new players right the way through, even giving James Carr his first senior start in the final.

By my count, we used 34 different players across the league, with 3 players featuring in all 8 games - Donal Vaughan, Aidan O'Shea, and Jason Doherty.

Still a long way to go, but seem to be in a better place than we have been at this time of year in quite a while.
some ne said there were 10 debutants in this years league  which would be fantastic,  id it looks like most of them are l#well up for it. but Im  not  sure if that is including player like Darren coen / Eoin o donoughoe who would have played a few years back other wise
Mick Cormack
James Kelly

cant think of any more the heads not great yet

Whatever about the D1 Final I doubt if many Donegals will be travelling to Croke Park for a Saturday evening game.
Mind you our neighbours will send a good few to the D4 Final who'll certainly outnumber the 500 from Derry.

Good to have a National Final without Dublin (a rare event this decade).
Hopefully but unlikely a forerunner for September.....

Loads of Donegal folk living in Dublin, I'd say they'll be there in numbers. Leitrim will bring a (relatively) huge crowd.

Ditto Mayos in Dublin.

Ya, I expect Mayo will bring big support.
Going by what I hear from friends in Mayo and from the Mayos I know here in Dublin, I expect around 50% of the total attendance will wear the green and red!
I think Kerry will bring more than you would normally expect from them. thy are getting fierce giddy about this team

Completely disagree. Ask anyone who has played in it.
That's beside the point. Of course those who have played in any competition will support its retention. They are still contrived and artificial competitions that reward teams for getting relegated in their own counties.
Should also get rid of all the B, C, D, level college competitions.

Only All Irelands for senior clubs, colleges and counties
good way to kill a sport that had no transfer system
so if your  from a junior club  what do you do with no proper competition to play in .
a c title for a small club would be as well celebrated than An a title for a school club who have buckets of them

I'd worry if we go with the same FB line again.
Can't understand how Stephen Coen gets so many starts with Mayo, just don't see what he offers.
Barrett has been poor too, he's constantly going in with the arm over in the tackle giving away soft frees.
I have to laugh at the constant negativity of some mayo fans .
mayo are  in a league final for feck sake playing really good football. :Loads of new player have been bled, some older players have come back into the reckoning .
Aidan O se has been on top of his game and that means there few better players in the country. there have been very few injuries  plus we don't have to play dublin in the final
thing could hardly be better ,

Not sure if this needs a thread of its own.

However, I wonder will the GAA and or Croke Park, market this game given that the estimated attendance will most likely be no more than 30k.

What would I do, I would distribute 1,000 tickets to bord na nog of each county board in Division 3 and 4.

You will promote Gaelic games in the weaker counties, (no insult intended).
Generate interest among underage players in same counties, who hopefully will be inspired to represent their county someday in Croke park.
Help create an atmosphere in Croke Park, it is after all a national final, nothing feels worse than watching a game there in a 2/3 empty stadium, and behind both goals empty, just seems so unnatural.


Someone in the GAA or Croke Park will have to get off their arse and organize. In this day and age with all the paid officials at national and provincial levels, it cannot be that difficult. They could figure it out in seven days if it was a championship replay in the summer.

yeah bring the football finals to Limerick . we'd love that in Mayo .
thought there was I pitc there id love a trip to the new stadium in cork

Bring bck Connolly!!
is Gavin going to fall  by his own ego .
he has got so much right over the last few years has he begun to think he is infallible and ignore the most obvious solutions rather than his own much cleverer ones
Rugby Joe could be falling at the same fence as well

The fact that the prods have managed to water down St Patrick's day parades up here in the north by issuing statements making people feel that they cant fly a tri-colour and in fact banning the national flag from parades by treating to withhold funding if they are flown shows that nationalist will still bow down. This needs to stop.

To be fair, St Patrick’s Day is not a day for tricolours. Nor is it a day for wearing Celtic shirts. Or stupid feckin’ leprechaun hats!  St Patrick (supposedly) brought Christianity to Ireland, not Catholicism. The day has been hijacked with all that. It’s not Ireland Day, it’s a saints day.

There are are some Protestants who celebrate it. There would be more only they probably don’t feel comfortable being in the middle of what looks like a Celtic match.

While unionists will do anything to water down the Irishness, on this occasion I reluctantly see their point.
revisionism at its worst
of course he brought Catholicism to the country what do you think they are protesting about .
As for Tri colors  etc that more to do with it also being Ireland's national day rather than an expression of religious fervor.
